Can love beat a lust for revenge?

Nelson Anderson is one of the richest men in America, but his life has become a quagmire of bitterness and the need for revenge. Wynter O’Reilly is a gutsy girl determined to make her life better--and she just may be the tool Nelson needs. All she needs is a little polish. 

To his surprise, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks helps heal emotional scars that all the money in the world can’t fix. But just when Nelson realizes that, his own plot for revenge may cost him not only Wynter’s love but her very life. 

Warning: contains explicit sex, language and violence.  (Goodreads)
Winning Heart is definitely a story that’ll capture your heart. I absolutely love this story. Laura Browning has a special way with words that pulls you in and makes you care deeply for her characters. Right off the bat, Wynter is a character you root for - she’s spunky, determined and smart. Nelson’s character is a bit awkward at first, but as the story progresses, he’s really someone you want to know better. The relationship between Wynter and Nelson is divine. They have great chemistry and the sensual scenes between them are written very well. Reading how their relationship blooms and how each of them grows is amazing. 

The major danger element is devastating and definitely not for the faint of heart. Wynter and Nelson’s relationship is tested way beyond normal boundaries. My only difficulties with the story is that Nelson starts having these feeling not even a year after his wife and child are killed (the time of grief isn’t realistic to me), and that Wynter is eighteen years old. The story is written well, flows swiftly and is phenomenal. I look forward to reading more from Laura Browning.
